The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of the most famous and best-selling Children books of all time. It's also one of my favouite Children books. I remember reading it when I was young and now I get to read it to my children. A timeless classic that remains one of the favourites.
With beautiful, unique illustrations and offers an interactive reading experience.
The story is about the journey of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. The story begins with an egg who turns into a caterpillar and that caterpillar is very hungry! He doesn’t understand why he wants to eat so much, but the reason is soon revealed as he spins a cocoon and turns into a beautiful fluttering butterfly.
A simple story that captures the minds of little ones. It has an educational value where Children can learn about the days of the week: On Monday, the caterpillar eats this, on Tuesday he eats that, and so forth. Along with basic counting, the importance of good nutrition and much more.
It's a wonderful story.
